Gulabo Sitabo, a Bollywood film starring Indian legend Amitabh Bachchan, was supposed to draw millions to cinema halls this spring. Instead, the crowd-pleasing Hindi satire debuted on Amazon.com Inc.’s Prime streaming service as the coronavirus kept Indians home.

Other Indian blockbusters have followed, pouring into online platforms like Netflix Inc. and Walt Disney Co.’s Disney+ Hotstar. That’s won the streaming services first rights to play films usually watched in theatres popular in this nation of 1.3 billion people.
